poured from a bottle into a 13ish oz pilsner glass


look: pale yellow and hazy. very thin white head with good retention. noticeable carbonation and good lacing.

smell: grassy with a very slight spice to it.

taste: starts off almost like an american pilsner but then spices and a very slight fruitiness come in. somewhat hoppy but nice and refreshing.

feel: medium bodied, but on the lighter side. effervescent with a nice slick feeling.

overall: i quite like this beer. it's easily drinkable and quite refreshing, with great flavor. i would definitely buy this again.

L) Pours a lovely, hazy, light straw color. Strong white head with great retention.

S) The smell is intensely grainy, with notes of barnyard, straw, and coriander. It is prickly yes clean.

T) Everything present on the nose is in the taste, with a bit of citrus and spice as well. The taste does not linger much, it is very dry.

F) This beer is perfectly carbonated and has a good body for how refreshing and crisp it is.

O) This brew is an incredibly solid representation of the style, paired with some garlic mashed potatoes wonderfully. I would recommend to anyone.

The spices used in the beer come through in a very balanced and delicious way. Great carbonation. I wish they sold it in 6 packs instead of 4!

Pours a slightly cloudy straw coloration with a large, creamy, lasting head. Smells of estery yeast and citrus aromas, with just a hint of banana, wheat and spice. Taste follows the nose, the taste being dominated by belgian yeast, wheat, and citrus: orange rind with a touch of lime, and a hint of banana. Also a mild coriander spicyness there. Crisp, dry and clean, with a very mild bitterness in the aftertaste, this is a refreshing and easy-drinking summer beer that still has some complexity to it. Probably the best Wit I've had, but that's not saying a lot, as I have not had many.

Just what you want from a white beer not too strong with the spices just right. Good for a fall afternoon
